A shoe repair shop (anything leather) owned by Richard "Dick" Wood. It was built around the late 1950s. Mr. Wood repaired shoes in this building throughout his adult life. He also sold candy, cigarettes, cigars, ice cream, prophylactics, and soda pops. Mr. Wood had been crippled by polio and was unable to walk. So Mr. Wood crawled on his hands and knees. Mr. Wood had self-crafted leather chaps that covered his shins and knees.
A local resident designed a small metal car for Mr. Wood that was operated by hand so he could drive the short distance from his home to work everyday.
Folks would stop in the shop daily to catch up on the news and visit with this interesting old fellow. He knew the scoop on everyone, many times before they knew it themselves.
